Gorgeous, rustic, peaceful, and fun
Our stay at Willow Springs Retreat was just terrific. The hostess Jessica, who was amazing throughout our stay, helped us pick out a perfect spot right by the lake. The grounds were immaculate and as picturesque as can be imagined. Our kids were amazed at the white sand beach by the dock and the friendly ducks. There are walking trails and stunning visuals in every direction, along with plenty of canoes to use. They drop firewood right off at the campsite for you as well. Highly recommended. We'll be back.
Far exceeded expectations
Jessica was awesome and really took care of us. The camp site is on a huge piece of private land with a stream and lake. There are plenty of woods with trails to explore and we could even take a canoe, kayak or paddle board out on the water. I would recommend this site to anyone looking for a quiet and private camping adventure.
The campsite was fine. Stayed here the first week in November and it was quite chilly. The sites for camping are set back in the woods a little bit in an area where they have recently cleared some space using machinery. I'm not sure if we were allowed to have a fire out in the field like the pictures show, this was never made clear as an option, though each of the sites themselves do have their own firepits, but the field is definitely a bit more of a picturesque view than you get at the campsites. There is one campsite which borders the creek, so that is nice at least. The boat access was nice, but the pond is pretty scummy and pretty shallow, so I'm not sure you'd actually want to swim here. Just food for thought if you were thinking of bringing the family to swim. The pond / creek is very peaceful though and we did enjoy kayaking.
